The Timeline

  • Commit to a Coding Bootcamp

    You may be wondering why this is on the timeline, but it's actually a very important decision point in this process. Covalence is a fully-featured Full Stack Developer bootcamp curriculum. By the time you finish it, you will be employable as a Full Stack developer.

    If you've been considering taking a coding bootcamp but you currently have a full time job, a family, or you simply can't commit to a full-time (8 hr/day), immersive bootcamp, then our Molecular Plan may be the perfect option for you.

  • Start your Molecular Plan

    You will receive immediate access to the curriculum and onboarding material once you start and pay for the Molecular Plan. You'll be able to immediately start your journey of learning software development. It's really that simple.

  • Complete our Time-Tested Curriculum

    ...at your own pace.

    Our streamlined Full Stack Developer curriculum is one of a kind. We've carefully selected the right topics and presented them in a unique lecture and lab format that teaches you exactly what you need to know to be a junior-level software developer.

    In the following months, you'll be learning new concepts through video lectures, drill exercises, and lab assignments that will populate your GitHub profile. You'll also be in the Covalence Community where you can receive real-time help from Covalence instructors, your peers, and you can help mentor other students along the way.

  • Build your Final Project

    Once you finish the bootcamp curriculum, you'll build a final project that is a culmination of all of the skills and tools that you've learned up until this point.

    This project is your opportunity to showcase your skills to potential employers. We'll teach you how to pace yourself and work with Agile methodologies, and you'll use GitHub to collaborate and manage your project.

  • Enter the Developer Workforce

    ...and the Covalence Community!

    Once you finish your final project and graduate from the Full Stack developer bootcamp, you'll be a newly-minted junior-level software developer. But your journey doesn't end there, and unlike most of our competitors, we also don't kick you to the curb with a hearty, "Good luck!".

    You've made it to this finish line, but the Covalence staff and Community members will still be here to help you find a real job as a developer - and learn additional skills through our other available courses.

Our Curriculum

At Covalence, we believe that JavaScript is the best language to learn when starting out. Web browsers (like Chrome) only understand JavaScript, so if you start with Ruby or Java, you'll still need to learn JavaScript. When you're first starting to code, don't over complicate it by learning two languages at once.

Fundamentals of Programming

All programming languages share constructs like loops, conditionals, functions, and more. We start by enforcing these fundamentals so that you will be able to pick up any programming language with ease.

Front-End Development

Applications need user interfaces in order for the user to interact with them. We'll teach you how to create web and mobile interfaces using the latest frameworks like ReactJS and React Native from Facebook.

Back-End Development

When a user interacts with an application, data needs to be saved somewhere, and that's where back-end technologies come into play. You'll use NodeJS to authenticate users, create APIs, and communicate with the database. NodeJS allows you to use JavaScript on the server, and it's the most popular back-end platform.

Databases

Your server needs to store data, and that's done in a database. There are several types of databases, and we'll focus on the most popular: MySQL and MongoDB (NoSQL).

Agile Development

It's vitally important that you learn to work in teams because when you get your first job, you won't be alone. Agile is a methodology for managing software projects, and you'll be using it heavily during the project phase of the class.

Frequently Asked Questions

Absolutely! We designed this streamlined curriculum to take students from novices to junior-level developers. We walk our students through multiple languages from beginning to end and reinforce concepts learned in lecture by having them work through drills and fully-featured labs assignments. These labs allow students to solidify concepts with learning-by-doing, which is an essential part of learning to code. Our highly qualified instructors ensure that our students are able to grasp concepts and help them learn how to correct any mistakes along the way.

Yes! Our Full Stack curriculum, whether it is completed through our Molecular or Catalyst Program, prepares our students to graduate as junior-level software developers. In addition to programming skills, students will learn how to polish themselves professionally via career resources provided by our Student Success team and will be prepared to apply and interview for developer positions.

Yes! The primary service that Covalence provides to you is live support from our full-time instructors and staff.

Molecular is our part-time program that takes 6-months to graduate. In Molecular, you can join any of our 5 daily live webinars that cover different topics, and you will have a weekly one-on-one mentoring session with an instructor.

Catalyst is our full-time program that takes 12-weeks to graduate. In Catalyst, you join a specific webinar every day, and you have access to your dedicated instructor throughout the day for live one-on-one mentoring sessions as needed.

For the Molecular program, absolutely! We created this program due to a high demand for a part-time option for our intense coursework. You are able to complete the Full Stack Developer curriculum through the Molecular program in 6-months by committing ~20 hours per week.

For the Catalyst Program, we discourage students from having full-time jobs while enrolled in a Catalyst cohort. It will be very difficult for you to keep up the accelerated pace of this immersive experience if your time is split between it, your job, and life in general. The Catalyst Program is a full-time commitment in and of itself, so if you are considering it, treat it with the same consideration you would give for a full-time, in-person bootcamp that you would attend from 9:00am to 5:00pm.

Molecular students will be expected to commit at ~20 hours per week to the curriculum in order to graduate in the 6-months.

Catalyst students will be expected to commit at least +40 hours per week to the curriculum, and that includes mandatory daily webinar sessions with instructors. Some students may need to spend more time than that to fully understand and utilize the curriculum.

We have job prep resources produced by Covalence staff members that are vital to the career success of our students. These resources include regular career guidance webinars, resume and cover letter workshops, and resources on preparing for interviews and technical problems.

We stay on top of job postings and new openings in order to share them with our students and alumni as soon as we find them. When students begin to apply for these positions, we make sure to reach out and connect with employers looking for talent.
